Hi and happy Sunday. I am a little under the weather this evening. I think the little ones I am around every day have finally infected me with my first sinus infection of the season. I took it easy today but I was anxious to make the felt stuffed softie "cookies" you see in the picture above. They were fun and easy. I found them here:
I love the BHG holiday publications and look forward to getting my hands on them every year. The Halloween cookies were in there and I thought they were cute. I would definitely change a few things if I made them again. The tan felt cookie wasn't big enough to be a border around the "frosting" layer. I would make the tan pattern substantially bigger next time. Also, I didn't top stitch because there wasn't enough tan showing. I also thought the spider web was too plain and I glued a felt spider on there with French knot eyes. They were fun and I think little kids would love them in their play kitchens as well as I enjoy them as cute holiday decor. If I were feeling better, I might make some for my class at school.
I also wanted to share an amazing grilled sandwich I made recently.
Trust me, this picture doesn't do it justice. This is a gouda portabello grilled sandwich and it is very tasty. I don't know if you know this about me, but I eat many of my meals pretty much meatless. I occasionally eat some meat but I am very picky about it. So, the mushrooms in this sandwich are right up my alley! Portabellos are so beefy tasting, even my husband didn't miss the meat(just so long as I served meat the next night!). I used the George Forman grill to press the sandwiches and they were delish. I also made a killer cream of broccoli soup that night but that will have to wait until another time.
I hope you all have a great week. I think I see a doctor visit in my future this week. Take care. Nancy
